Product Information

The "Hollow Base" in the base of the bullet allows us to make a longer profile without adding weight.  For example if we were to hollow base a 230gr .45 ACP bullet, it now weighs 185gr..  The longer profile gives more "Bearing Surface" on the bullet, which helps a pistol barrel stabilize the bullet.  These bullets are very accurate, even at low to mid-range velocities.

This is not loaded ammunition.

Berry's..(452) 185 grain hollow base round nose

By Mike T. on Feb 04, 2023
From a Springfield 1911 A1 this bullet is accurate shooting a 7 shot group of 2.5 to 3 inches at 25 yards. I didn't find it as accurate as berry's 185 gr hybrid hollow point, but with a full charge of Unique they shoot better than fmj factory loads.
They sure don't blow up milk jugs full of water like berry's 185 hybrid hollow point does. Their hollow points are too much fun!
Neither of the 185 gr berry's bullets leaded my barrel in the slightest bit either.

I haven't loaded any yet but my past experience with Berry's has been very good and I think these will be also.

Berry’s .45 ACP 185 Gr. HBRN - An Economical Solution

By John H. on Oct 31, 2022
I use these projectiles exclusively for plinking & target shooting. For the quality & price point, they perform extremely well. After all, how much $$$ do you really want to spend to tear up a paper target or knock the paint off of your steel targets . . . . . Thanks Graf’s for fair pricing and quick shipping!

.45 HBRN

By Raymond S. on Dec 18, 2020
These bullets work great in my 1911. They are easy to load, affordable, and they have the appearance of a traditional 230gr .45 load externally. I highly recommend and will purchase them again.

Excellent quality product for the money.

I have used Berry bullets in various loads and calibers. A nice bullet to reload. It is a great economical bullet. I appreciate Graf and Son's for supplying these bullets to reloaders at the difficult time of obtaining components. Thank you.

These 185 he horn shoot great

I'm a customer for life for this bullet.

By Walter D. on Jun 06, 2020
Berry's Bullets are great quality bullets. No blems, beautiful finish. My favorite is the 185gr. 45acp hollow base bullet. I'm able to shoot accurately without the usual muzzle flip as with military ball ammo. I would recommend to bullet to all my friends who reload.

I use these bullets in my WW1 vintage S&W US Army Model 1917 with great success. Absolutely no leading in a slightly pitted bore. A totally awesome product.

Quality at a good price
